Over 50 years after Rosa Parks’ famous refusal to give up her seat to a white person…could the battle still not be over. The Shreveport Times is reporting that nine black students were told last to t move to the back of the bus because the front was reserved for white children. The parents complained so the driver was asked to create seating assignments. So the bus driver did so and placed the nine black students in the back of the bus. Another complaint and now a black bus driver is picking the students up. The NAACP is involved and the superintendent is investigating. Click here for more news stories on the topic.


Aish.com has a good summary of the recent photo fraud in Lebanon. It will definitely make you think twice about your reaction to news photos. Why are we seeing so many photogs staging and enhancing photos? Here is the link. (Thanks Jeff for the link)

Anyone who lives in a hurricane prone area probably knows the name Max Mayfield he is the Director of the National Hurricane Center (or maybe you just have to be a dork like me). Mayfield typically is in the news making predictions about the hurricane season or a specific hurricane.

Well today that was not the case he was making a prediction that the worst is yet to come. “People think we have seen the worst. We haven’t,” he said. So I am assuming that he is basing that on science. The story ran on the websites of many major news outlets across the country.

At first glance you may think he is suggesting that there will be a bigger hurricane than Katrina coming. No, what he is saying is that because we keep building on the coast and more people populate that some point within the next one hundred years when a hurricane hits there will be more damage and more lives lost than in Katrina or Andrew.

While he is absolutely correct why is it that this is making the front page of so many websites? I may be wrong but I’m pretty sure it’s because the headline on most of the stories is “Worst is yet to come, US hurricane chief says.” The reality is this story is done time and tie again it’s just that now they can attribute it to science even though it’s still common sense.

A new restaurant in Mumbai is called “Hitler’s Cross.” And no it’s not just the name the restaurant is themed…well as the Reuters article put it “It’s like if “The Producers” opened an eatery.

Gatta love this…Brooklyn Prosecutor says that Brooklyn has “more dead bodies per square inch than anybody else.” He gets fired for obvious reasons and sues for damages and wins. Here is the story in the NY Sun.

As Jedd said “Something labeled as “don’t download this song” sounds sketch,” but promise it’s not. Weird Al (what ever happened to him) just released a new cd called “Don’t Download This Song.” Well I recommend that you download his song for free…leagally on his site. Here is the link to the song.

So many people have been asking me about my Wheel of Fortune experience. According to the Wheel message boards my show will be re-airing this Thursday. I am not sure if this is true because the website says otherwise. We shall see.
